looking for anwsers on Adelaide
My name is Alice and i am nearly 12. I still live in England and i am hopefully moving some time next year or the year after!
if anyone can tell me what to expect of australia i would really like it!!!
thanks a lot
well i'm your sister so i don't really know i'm asking the same question
beaches are really nice, ice creams are really nice, everyone i've met has been really nice, easy to make friends at school, school is a lot more relaxed than the uk, plenty of cool stuff to do. i love it, my family love it. i'm sure you will too.
Cameron also 12
Hi Alice, I'm Ellie, I've been talking to your sister a little. I'm not sure when you posted this and if you'll ever read my reply ( )

First of what to expect from Australia, the winters are actually really cold. The heat is different to England, in England 17 is HOT but over here it is actually pretty cold, and I mean it FEELS cold.
Soft drinks and stuff are pretty expensive, so if you like them your better off buying a big crate of them. Also, you get a 10c refund on every bottle if you take it to a recycling plant. It doesn't sound alot but we collected heaps of our bottles and we got like $12.70 so it's worth it.
Other stuff, quite alot of bugs and flies, but they don't bother you TOO much.
Listen to how they say stuff because my friends tease me a little when I say something in a Britich accent.
Oh here's some different stuff:
Hot Chips= Chips, it's easier to call them fries or itt gets confusing
Crook=Sick or Ill
Textas=Felt Tip Pens
and theres heaps more.
Oh yeah, people in SA say "heaps" or "heaps good" alot
And they're pretty much obsesed with FUIC (Farmers Union Iced Coffee)
yeah i am i have her on fb too, do you have fb?
